A woman who allegedly bit the testicles of a truck stop camel in an effort to escape was sent to the hospital after the headlines-shattering encounter.
WAFB reports the incident went down last Thursday night at a truck stop in Grosse Tete, Louisiana where a camel named Caspar was on display inside of a fenced off enclosure.
At some point during the truck stop visit, a couple's deaf dog got away from them and made it beneath the fencing. The couple followed their dog, only to be met with Caspar, who's described in the report as "an agitated camel."
Then, due to reasons not fully known or otherwise elaborated on in accounts of the incident, the camel "sat on the woman." The woman then bit the camel's testicles, subsequently landing her in the hospital, though the extent of her possible injuries has not been made public.
"She said, 'I bit his balls to get him off of me, I bit his testicles to get him off of me,'" Iberville Parish Deputy Louis Hamilton Jr. said, per a separate report from The Advocate.
However, for those blaming the camel for this brouhaha, Hamilton noted that early investigation findings point to the couple having been "aggressive" toward the camel.
"The camel did nothing wrong.... The camel was just doing its normal routine," Hamilton said, adding that the camel in question has "never caused any issues" in the past.
Ultimately, the couple was cited by deputies for a leash law violation and criminal trespassing.
